The Toronto Blue Jays and the Baltimore Orioles will meet up on the MLB diamond to finish their series on Sunday.

Toronto took the first two games of this set, 11-2 on Thursday and 5-2 on Friday. In the Saturday game three, Baltimore got one back 6-4.

For Sunday’s game, the Jays will be sending out Sean Reid-Foley in the start. Over his 17.2 innings and 1-1 record this year, Reid-Foley has a 2.55 ERA with 16 Ks and 10 BBs.

Toronto managed 12 hits in their loss on Saturday. Three of those belonged to Vladimir Gurerro Jr., with an RBI as well.

Over on the Orioles’ side, they’re going with Tom Eshelman in the start Sunday. Across 22.2 innings and an 0-2 record this season, Eshelman has a 6.35 ERA with 17 Ks and seven walks.

Baltimore put up sun six hits in the win on Saturday, but made them count. Trey Mancini topped the team with a homer and four RBI.

The Blue Jays are 1-4 in their last five Sunday games and the under is 7-3-1 in their last 11 in game four of a series. The over is 4-0 in Reid-Foley’s last four starts versus the AL East and 5-2 in his last seven starts overall.

Meanwhile, the Orioles are 0-5 in their last five in game four of a series and 7-19 in their last 26 Sunday games. The under is 7-3 in the Orioles’ last 10 in game four of a series and 5-0 in their last five Sunday games.

Over Reid-Foley’s last four appearances, he’s been solid. In that time he’s given up just two earned across a total of 15.2 innings—that’s two starts and two relief outings.

As for Eshelman, he’s had some stumbles in his limited action this season, with 10 earned across his last three appearances. I can’t find a lot of reasons to lean that way so I’m going Blue Jays here.
